  1. Ashley is tighter than a snare drum. Didn't give me a penny to spend in January window in season 2014/2015.
  2. Paid £5m up front and £20m after 48 months on update in 2014/2015. Has 21 goals and 10 assists in 20 games. Top Scorer in PL. Top Average Rating. Play him as an IF on Attack. Incredible player.
  3. Happy with my first season with Arsenal on my first FM14 save - Premier League Winners Champions League Semi Finals League Cup Quarter Finals FA Cup 3rd round PL Table - 1. Arsenal 2. Everton 3. Man Utd 4. Chelsea 5. Spuds 6. Man City 15. Liverpool In Serie A, AC Milan were relegated. Play 4-2-3-1 Still tweaking tactics and roles. Cant get the perfect balance as yet. In - Balanta Lewandowski L Bender De Sciglio Ward Prowse (Jan) Doria (Jan) Mitrovic (Jan) Out - Sagna Arteta Rosicky Fabianski Frimpong Park Plus plenty of youngsters out on loan. Was definitely a season of two halves. Had a shocking run from December to Feb which knocked me out of both cups and gave chasing teams the opportunity to catch me up. No player really stood out for me. Had 6 players with 10+ goals - Lewandowski Giroud Cazorla Ozil Ramsey Koscielny Didn't want to change too many things in pre season. Deals so far - In - Draxler Zouma Ter Stegen Corchia L Shaw Niang Out - Bendtner (Free) Diaby Flamini Monreal Jenkinson Vermaelen Podolski Had a £40m bid for Ramsey from Man City which I rejected. Happy with my squad and hope I can defend PL and win a cup. Got rotten draws in every cup competition last season.
  4. Roma got relegated in the first season on my Atalanta save. They then sold entire squad bar Totti and Lamela. Unbelievable.
  5. He's a fantastic CB. Absolute class on my Atatlanta save. I finshed second in Serie A. Best defence in the league bar Juve.
  6. Cavani wasn't great. Only 15 goals in all competions in season 1. Not what I expected for £35m.
  7. Finished my 1st season with Arsenal. 3rd in PL after only losing 2 games. Spuds 2nd and City Winners. City were a joke. Adebayor was top goalscorer. Very realistic. Not. Lost CL semi on pens after getting Wilshere sent off in 1st minute and getting 4 injuries. Lost FA Cup semi to Spuds who I couldn't beat all season. Lost 4th round of COC to Fulham away with reserve team. I drew far too many games at home to poor teams, even though I destroyed them stats wise. Roll on season 2.
  8. Finally started with Everton last night. Will use 3 different formations, dependant on home or away and opposition. 4-1-2-2W-1, 4-2-3-1 or 4-2-2W-2. As I do on all FM's, I did the majority of my transfers in the first window. Sold - Baines - £21.5m Hibbert - £2.5m Gibson - £3.5m Distin - £0.5m Anichebe - Loan with £4m future fee Gueye - £3m over installments Mucha - £1.5m Vellios - Loan with £1m future fee Osman - £2.2m Bought - Dzagoev - Free Transfer joins in Jan Wellington Nem - £3.5m Demba Ba - £7m over 48 months Kjaer - £3.2m J Willems - £10m over 48 months Butland - £4m Adryan - £875k Forren - £4.2m Ademilson - £5.25m over 48 months Capoue - £13m over 48 months Struggling to get a right back. Can't get a work permit for Vrsaljko. Team using 4-2-2W-2 - Gk - Howard/Butland Dr - Coleman/????? Dl - Willems/Oviedo Dc - Heitinga/Kjaer Dc - Jagielka/Forren Mc - Capoue/Heitinga Mc - Fellaini/Barkley Amr - W Nem/Pienaar Aml - Mirallas/Ba Fc - Jelavic/Ademilson Fc - Ba/Mirallas Team is good, squad needs work. Luckily a lot of players can play in different positions. Hope I can have a blinding season and sneak into the top 4.
  9. I'm old school as well. Can't be using this metric rubbish!
  10. Where and how do you play JW to get such good stats and performances?
  11. Doing good things for me at Everton. £8.75m over 48 months, £32.5k per week. Bargain.
  12. Finally Started with good old Everton. Did my usual of ripping the team apart/get rid of old & or rubbish & start again. Sold - Mucha - £3m Hibbert - £1.1m Loan , £3.9m Future Fee Distin - £2m Neville - £1m Loan, £2m Future Fee Osman - £3.7m Billy - £6m Cahill - £8.5m Anichebe - £1m Loan, £4m Future Fee Cancelled 3 Loan players to save on wages. Bought - Vrsaljko - £1m Butland - £1.5m Subotic - £12.75m Vertonghen - £8m Digne - £1.4m Badelj - £4m M. Henriksen - £3m L. Andersen - £1m Shaqiri - £9.75m Wilfried ( Spelling??? ) £2.5m Doumbia - £17m ( Looks & Plays unbelievable ). Team looks good. Most Transfers done over 48 months. Still need another Winger, but no luck. Saha wont leave even on a free. Need to get rid of his wages. Baines & fellaini need new contracts. Got a Chinese Feeder Club to hopefully bring in some more dough. Good mix of youth & experience. Hopefully get near 4th & win a cup. Wont do anymore 48 month deals as it will screw club up over time. Come on you Toffee's!!! Team - Gk - Howard/Butland Dr - Coleman/Vrsaljko/Heitinga Dl - Baines/Vertonghen/Digne Dc - Jags/Heitinga Dc - Subotic/Vertonghen Mc - Fellaini/Barkley Mc - Rodwell/Badelj/Henriksen Amr - Shaqiri/Andersen/Coleman Aml - Not Sure Yet. Need to buy. Willian etc... Have rejected so far. Need 2 Players. St - Doumbia/Wilfried
  13. Not sure why you boys need a Man Utd thread at all to be honest. I played against Man Utd last night and witnessed the most ridiculous, overrated player I have seen on this games series for 15 years. Yes you guessed it - Wayne Rooney. As long as he is in your team you will win everything. Dont take offence, the boy is quality IRL and should be good on FM12, but not that good. 4 goals & 1 assist. Very unrealistic.
  14. Got absolutely battered by Rooney at OT 1st season. Yes I wrote Rooney instead of Man Utd because I have never ever seen such a aone man overrated ridiculous game in my life. He was quicker than Walcott. Scored 4 & assisted 1. 5-0. Id not conceded a goal before this. Apart from that a good start. Injuries on this one are just as bad - Rvp - 2 Months, Cavani 2 Months, Gotze 7 weeks, Walcott 6 Weeks & Gervinho 5 weeks. Joke.
